Basin PLAYS initiative helps kids get active
Healthy lifestyle for children and youth lead to healthy lifestyles for life. To help make this happen, Columbia Basin Trust’s $3-million, multi-year Basin Physical Literacy and Youth Sport (PLAYS) initiative that works with community sports groups, schools, volunteer coaches and others to provide resources and support they need to help kids be more active.
The initiative will offer training and capital improvement grants, an online resource hub, build relationships with community sports organizations, and collaborate with school districts to support physical literacy and sports in schools
If you’re involved in youth sport, you’re invited to attend one of the upcoming community meetings and learn more about the opportunities available through Basin PLAYS.
